The 2nd Annual Junction car show got underway early Sunday morning, Sept. 20, with many of the participants taking their places along Calfornia Avenue Southwest well before the 8 a.m. starting time.

The show featured cars from the 1930's, 1940's 1950's, 1960's and 1970's and this year saw more than 236 participants.

The sunny skies encouraged thousands to show up.

Music for the show was provided by DJ Galen Suave. The event also featured a number of raffles, antique fire trucks from the Last Resort Fire Department, the Miss Oh Boy! O'Berto Hydroplane and plenty food at Junction restaurants.

West Seattle Car Show

Unfortunately, not everyone played fair for this event.
I was not allowed to participate in this event because my vehicle is a 1980 model year.
yet, when the rules state 1975 and older, ok...fair is fair
Why then were 3 of the 4 "1941" Willys cars replicas, not the real thing with steel bodies?
These replicas are NOT older than 1975.
Also there was a 1965 AC Cobra, that while nice looking, was in fact a kit car, not the real thing and certainly not made before 1975.
Further along, there was a 1954 Corvette that would be questionable as it stated right on the placard for the vehicle that it was a retro built on a 1996 chassis.
You might be thinking, ah, "sour grapes". Yes, a little. I was disappointed that I could not participate.
But if you are going to have rules, enforce them.
Maybe the people registering the autos for the event were misled. I don't know. But either open the event to all participants or make sure the vehicles are actually in accordance with your own rules.

car show guidelines

the minimum requirement in the state of washington for a car to be deemed a classic or collectable is 30 years or older and the body and just the body must be a replica of the origanal vehicle or the original vehicle.i would like to see the age restriction lowered to pre 1964 to make it a real classic car show not a classic car and mucle car show but that is up to the powers that are in charge of the car show they must have there own reasons but all and all it was a awesome car show and cant wait until next year
